This is an update release to Version 1.0.5815.
New in this release:
Bug fix: In WinPESE , automated discovery would crash if no existing Windows installations (from Windows and Windows.old folders) found. Option included to re-direct to "Retrieve key from backup" instead for a user initiated search.
OEM description was not displaying for the associated key.
@Kyhi, @topgundcp - can you please test.
Bug fix: Some motherboards (eg. Gigabyte) have a pre-installed MSDM table in the firmware without an OEM key embedded. Exception caught if key not present.
Based on error reported here: Showkey - Page 19 - Windows 10 Forums
and here: Please Read: Activation troubleshooting - Page 7
- Click Yes then Cancel: displays blank screen with Save button Disabled
- Click No: displays blank screen with Save button Enabled
- Click Cancel: Exit the program
I think this is a little bit confusing that you have 3 buttons: Yes, No, Cancel. IMO, should only have Yes and No. If click No or Yes ->Cancel then Exit. If click Yes then search for SOFTWARE.
But it was also looking for Bios Embedded key or oem marker...In WinPESE , automated discovery would crash if no existing Windows installations (from Windows and Windows.old folders) found.
So what they are reporting (really) is there is No Embedded Key or OEM marker, No Windows.old folders or windows OS partitions..
So to me just a message is fine...
Yes No CancelEXIT
As the retrieve key from backup Option still there..
But unless they mount a windows image - there is no key to be found anyway..
if No Key then Message and Exit - IMO all that is needed..
If must have question in message then YES = Popup Retrieve Key (search) Screen > NO=Exit

I downloaded the new version - @topgundcp will need to test the error messages..
As all my PC's have an oem marker...
5812 Included a version check to alert of new releases
5815 did not popup a new 5829 version available
Nevermind, figured out why...
